OK, I admit I stole this idea from the EFO folks, but.....

......"Wouldn't it be nice if we could post-up, or register the motorcycle equivalent of a basic flight plan. You know, just where I'm leaving from and what time I expect to be at the Brier Inn. Maybe include the first name only and phone number of somebody to contact in case we don't show.
So, if you don't have someone else keeping track, you can contact me with the information. PM me, or email it to: jackson8888_ a t _yahoo_.com (remove the underscores & spaces). Do not post the information here.

your name

forum name

your cell number you'll have with you

emergency contact name

emergency contact phone number

departure from home, date and time

estimated arrival at Custer, date and time

your route to CFO (optional)

If you have trouble in route, or will be significantly delayed, you can call me. It will reduce the worry factor, and I may be able to offer assistance if you're in the neighborhood. I was trying to figure out how to post my phone number without it being easily harvested by automatic programs. Change the last number to a four, and this is my cell no.: 605-890-4402

In a similar thread over in the EFO department, I posted this:

Speaking as one who has been lying unconscious on the side of the road while paramedics searched through the odd names listed in my cell phone speed dial...This is a good idea.

I was lucky that my phone somewhat worked after the crash (for a bit). I was unlucky in that I call very few people by their real name or relationship title. They ended up calling my father-in-law. He only lives about 350 miles away from where I was lying. He did, however, call my wife.

And don't count on being able to remember numbers. I couldn't. I knew who I was. I knew who my wife was. But for the life of me, I could not remember any phone numbers.
In your cell phone, put a listing for "ICE", which is for "In Case of Emergency". This would be the phone number you want called In Case of Emergency.

From Wikipedia

The ICE (In Case of Emergency) program was conceived by paramedic Bob Brotchie in May 2005. The idea behind the program is to enable first responders (paramedics, firefighters, police officers) to identify people and contact their next of kin to obtain important medical information. People are encouraged to enter in their emergency contact person(s) in their mobile phone book in the following format ICE1-mum, ICE2-dad, ICE3 etc. The popularity of the program has spread across Europe, and has started to grow into North America.

Another thing you can do is have an emergency card...

Go get this emergency medical information card.

Fill it out

Print it

And keep it in your wallet where it will be easily found.

It has a spot for medications, allergies, and medical history.
